Traumatic

A spinal cord injury can occur at any point along the spinal cord and is the result of damage to the cells within the spinal cord.

During a traumatic event, such as a fall from a height, car accident or sporting injury, the spinal cord can become crushed and deprived of its blood supply, resulting in loss of function (paralysis) and loss of sensation from below the injury point.

Trauma to the spinal cord can result in both short term and long term paralysis, depending upon the nature of the injury and area of the cord that has been damaged.
